Norwich is the only club in the current bottom six not to have overseen a managerial change, with many of the Canaries' Premier League rivals opting for a new course.
"Not every club has taken that route. If you look at West Ham there was a bigger outcry from their supporters for change and they have done okay recently," said McNally. "You have to be mindful of what is happening at other clubs but similarly if you draw a comparison with transfers we don't react if one of our peers decides to sign seven players in January, for instance. If we believe Chris is the right man to take the club forward then we stick with that. It is fine margins in our sport and what you have to be sure of is a guaranteed improvement."
